4th Annual National Night Out!

It's hard to believe but the first Tuesday in August is right around the corner - as a matter of fact it happens to be next Tuesday August 1st. And the first Tuesday in August is starting to mean something in Manawa as the city prepares to celebrate its 4th annual National Night Out. The fun will take place at the beautiful Lindsay Park shelter starting at 5:00 p.m. and ending at 8:00 p.m. The entertainment this year includes the comedy juggling routine of Truly Remarkable Loon and live music with the bluegrass band The Chord Trackers. Mixed in with all of that will be games for kids, a special appearance by the Waupaca County K-9 Unit, tours of fire trucks and ambulances and police cars and some hotdogs hot off the grill and delicious root beer floats. This citywide event is sponsored by the Manawa Police Department, The Manawa Rural Fire and Ambulance Department, the City of Manawa, the Manawa Lions Club and the Sturm Memorial Library. Special support from the Waupaca County Sheriff's Department, Sturm Foods, First State Bank, Premier Bank and the A. Sturm & Sons Foundation make this annual party a truly community effort. We hope to see a lot of folks there - the weather forecast looks very fine and if there is a sweeter place than Lindsay Park on a summer evening we haven't found it.

National Night Out is a nation-wide effort by local law enforcement and the National Association of Towns to partner with other community organizations to get neighbors out in their communities sharing food, fun and laughter. Manawa is one of 6,000 cities across the country having a party next Tuesday. We love being a part of an event so huge. Communities where people know one another are safer communities for everyone. So come on out and see old friends and make some new ones. Be sure to bring a lawn chair and get ready to be entertained.
